Fusion foods are all of the craze nowadays, whether it’s a delicious confection made with two iconic desserts such as Brookies (brownies and cookies) or Cronuts (croissants and doughnuts), or a monstrosity of flavours that are beyond your wildest dreams – like Nasi Lemak Icecream or Boba Ramen! 


Whatever the case, getting creative in the kitchen is never something we’re opposed to! Which is why we decided to have a go at a delicious fusion of French-inspired, Malaysian infused flavours!

What’s more reminiscent of our beloved Kuih than a bite-sized taste of rich culinary culture – the macaron, of course!

So why not blend the two together to make a rainbow of taste, texture and delicious flavour with Malaysian Macarons – infused with tropical tastes such as mango and strawberry jam, Malaysian favourites like pandan and kaya, and timeless flavours like chocolate and coffee! 

We thoroughly enjoyed these bites of flavour and colour – not to mention, they’re incredibly aesthetic and so very adorable, too! We think you’ll love them just as much, so here’s exactly how you can go about making them yourself: 


For the cookies: 

3 large egg whites 

1 Tbsp meringue powder

3 Tbsp sugar

¾ cup extra fine ground almonds

1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

A pinch of salt

food colouring pastes

For the filling:

Cream Fillings:
1/4 cup soft butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 tablespoon cream
1/2  teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon mango jam, strawberry jam and pandan extract (each)

Coconut Ganache:
1/4 cup chopped white chocolate
1/4  coconut cream 3 oz
3 tablespoons kaya jam

Coffee and chocolate Ganache:
1/4 cup chopped milk chocolate
1/3 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons instant coffee powder

Chocolate Ganache:
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup milk chocolate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavour
A pinch of salt


  1. Line your baking trays with parchment paper, and in the meanwhile, preheat your oven to about 300 F. 
  2. For your biscuits, whisk together your egg whites and meringue powder until foamy in a mixing bowl, then slowly add in your sugar and whip until your mixture can hold soft peaks. Be careful not to overwhip your mixture, especially your egg whites. Stir the ground almonds and icing sugar together and then fold them into your whipped mixture in small batches while continuously mixing. 
  3. Divide the batter into 6 separate bowls and add in a dash of food colouring into each, to signify the different flavours of macarons (optional) – Then, fill in separate piping bags with regular tips with each of the coloured batters and pipe 1 1/2 inch wide macarons onto your parchment-lined tray, make sure they’re far enough from one another so they don’t stick together while baking. 
  4. Set your macarons to rest in room temperature for about 20 minutes or so until they develop a “skin” where their surface appears matte or dull, and no longer shiny. Now, bake them for about 10 minutes, until they easily lift off the parchment paper using a spatula. 
  5. Finally, let them cool on the trays before removing. Well baked macarons always have a “foot” wherein the insides of the macaron have pushed out forming a ridged edge at the bottom of every macaron. 
  6. In separate bowls, start to create your fillings of different flavours. 
  7. For the cream fillings, mix together all your ingredients in the separate bowls (divided equally), then add in your different flavours of jam and flavour extracts into each and whip together well to achieve a buttercream like consistency. 
  8. For the ganache fillings, preheat your chocolates until a thick chocolate paste is formed and then mix together all the other ingredients in 3 separate bowls to create your 3 different ganache fillings. Make sure to mix well to avoid clumps within your ganache. 
  9. Finally, start to assemble your macarons by piping your fillings on the bottom of one macaron and press the bottom of a second macaron biscuit on top of it – to evenly sandwich your filling. Remember to pipe in the right flavour for each macaron if your macarons are coloured. 
  10. Finally, chill and enjoy! 

These macarons can last you for up to 4 days when well refrigerated, just remember to enjoy them before they spoil! 

While definitely being one of the more tedious desserts, we think they’re worth all the time and effort.
